Tucson Rep. Todd Clodfelter, Phoenix lawmaker propose pot legalization


The Connected Press

PHOENIX — Voters would have a different possibility to weigh in on legalizing marijuana in Arizona beneath a proposal in the state Residence.

The proposal from Republican Rep. Todd Clodfelter of Tucson and Democratic Rep. Mark Cardenas of Phoenix was announced Thursday. If authorized by the Residence and Senate, it would be on November’s ballot.

Opposition amongst Republican lawmakers to legalizing marijuana is robust, so it results remains in doubt.

The proposal enables these 21 and older to possess an ounce of marijuana and develop up to six plants. Smoking in public would be banned and cities and towns could bar marijuana companies. Existing health-related marijuana laws stay intact.

The proposal would tax sales and enable employers to bar workers from utilizing marijuana.

Arizona voters narrowly rejected a legalization work in 2016.
